I've been watching the auction this afternoon, and a number of cars are either selling for significantly less than the auction estimates or not meeting reserve.

Maybe someone here can get a good price!

$12,100 including 10% buyer's premium - attaboy

Not ideal for CA buyers - they added the "dealer or non-CA buyers only" clause at the time the car was brought up, not in the info beforehand.

A really great buy for a lucky new owner. Hope someone continues to love the car. Nice examples are becoming very scarce. Most of the other Mercedes offered brought good money.

Looking back, even a short year ago, this car was a bargain steal at $12k....CA legit, meant it could be resold in CA where the $money$ is.... if not for an enthusiast who would appreciate the car for what it is...hope to hear about it again...

Geezus... I'd forgotten about this stunner. In today's market coupes are bringing all the money but still, this would be worth double or triple what it went for. At a minimum.

Anthracite plus Lorinser... my dream car.
